Setting the scale and view

You can print or plot the entire drawing or a selected portion, depending on which options you select in the Print dialog box. You can choose to print what is visible on the screen, or you can specify to print an area of the drawing.

You can control the position of the drawing on the paper by specifying the origin of the print area, the location of the lower left corner of the print area, in relation to the lower left corner of the paper. The origin is normally set to 0,0, which places the lower left corner of the print area as close to the lower left corner of the paper as the printer or plotter will allow. You can specify a different origin, however, by specifying different coordinates.

When you create a drawing, you generally draw entities full-size. When you print the drawing, you can specify the scale of the resulting print or let the program adjust the size of the drawing to fit the paper. To print the drawing at a specific scale, specify the scale as a ratio of drawing units to printed units.

If you are printing from a Layout tab, the scale and view options you specify can be different for each layout that you create.
